So this may be the opposite of what people may think I'm doing making a new IG account, but here it goes. I think this is important to share this information about me so you know where I'm coming from and why this page is so important to me. •
I made an account for myself in order to track my journey and my progress. I made it public so that I can be a motivator for someone else, so I can connect with other people in the fitness community and to learn and grow from them.
I've been so unhappy with my body for the past 5 years and of course now, when I'm finally happy with the way I'm looking, I want to post about it and scream about it from the roof tops. EVERYONE should want to be and feel happy in their own skin
Honestly, I never talked about how much I hated the way I looked... I don't think anyone even knew. It was an internal demon I dealt with quietly on my own. I took selfies and posted just as much as the next girl, but do you know how many times I retook that shot? How many outfits I tried on before finally saying "ugh I guess I'll resort to this, I look less fat in this one". How many outfits I decided on solely for the need to make sure my 'fat sucker' was hidden so people thought I was actually just thin?
Again, this page is for ME! To see where I've come from, where I started, my growth, my success, it's my accountability, it's my motivation to see how far I've come, it's a reminder to avoid the lifestyle I once lived where I was so unhappy, it's a place to see what I need to still work on, what muscle groups I'm lacking on. It's my personal education about MY BODY. I opened it up to everyone so that someone who is like the old me can come across it and get the motivation to better themselves, be who they want to be, and know they're not alone. I opened it up to a supportive fitness community versus my own personal page to avoid negativity and people who want to assume they know me and think I'm doing this just for attention. IVE LEARNED TO LOVE FITNESS and want to express this passion as does anyone who is passionate about anything and honestly I feel like I'm #winning at life right now because I'm living it for ME ❤️💪🏼
